Development Permit & Site Plan
“Development and building permits are required with applicable fees for all structures 100 square feet and over; decks, steps and patios 100 square feet and over as well as minimum two feet off the ground also require development and building permits.”
If you are planning to build a structure that meets the above criteria you must submit a development permit to the council of the Town of Redvers for approval along with a $100 fee. This fee is refundable if the project is 100% complete within 2 years.
Development permits are reviewed by Council at regular town meetings (two meetings per month) and are valid for 2 years after approval from Council. Please keep these timelines in mind when filing your development permit with the office.
Once a development permit has been approved by Council a building permit is required. The Town of Redvers utilizes the expertise of Professional Building Inspections (PBI). This permit requires much of the same information as the development permit but also requires additional information and more forms specific to PBI. All of these forms can be picked up at the Town Office. The building permit is sent to PBI and they work with the home owner/developer directly. The cost of this permit varies depending on what is being built. Cosmetic work being done on a home does not require a permit (ex – upgrading the windows in your home and not changing the dimensions). If you are altering what is existing then permits are required (ex – putting in larger windows).
For further information and clarification on your renovation please contact the office at 306.452.3533.
There is a fee for plumbing permits based on the number of fixtures being installed. Contact Public Health in Weyburn directly for Plumbing Permit fees and information. They can be reached by phone at (306)842-4455.
The Town of Redvers offers dog and cat licenses for your family pet. The fee is $25 per pet for a lifetime license, and includes a numbered tag that can be placed on your pet’s collar. If a lost pet is found the ID tag number can be used to track down the pet owner so they can be reunited with their lost pet.
Business licenses are required in the Town of Redvers for anyone carrying out business within the town limits and do not pay taxes to the Town of Redvers. The business license is $25 per day or $100 per year plus applicable taxes. Stop by the office for more information or to purchase yours. Those with existing licenses will be automatically billed annually in January of each year, unless prior notice is given that the business no longer requires it.
